Looking ahead, Monday 4th August is the key date in the First World War centenary, as it is the day war broke out in 1914. There will be No Glory events around the country, and in London we’re planning a major demonstration in Parliament Square from 6pm. More details of all these events will be posted on our website as soon as we have them.
